The Universal Rundle Toilet Review 2022: Is It Worth It?

Buying a toilet for your home is not that easy of a task but it’s not that complex either. All you need is a bit of research before getting one. To help you a bit in this regard, we’ve come up with our Universal Rundle toilets review.

To be a bit more accurate, it should be called an overview rather than a review. Whatever you may call it (or we may name it), our aim is to help you as much as we can. So come along!

A Short Universal Rundle Background

Universal Rundle Toilet

Before moving to the main discussion let’s get to know about the company in a bit.

The Universal Rundle is quite a familiar name in the toilet manufacturing market.

In the 1980s, they were owned by a corporation named Crane Fixtures. In the year 2008, Crane Fixtures became American Standard.

However, there is one thing that you need to keep in mind and that is, in their logo, the UPC code is stamped but they aren’t UPC.

They are URC. UPC and URC both are manufacturing standards by the governing body.

The Tale of Universal Rundle Toilet

For this reason, we will talk about some of their products as this will give you an overall idea of their products and how you should proceed when it comes to getting one.

However, one thing that you should keep in mind that is you may or may not find anything specifically named Universal Rundle in the market as they have officially become American Standard.

We hope this info that might help. So without further ado, let’s dive in.
